We stay late. We play dodge ball. We love digital. We draw. We execute. We paint. We follow through. We get to know our clients. We are involved in the community. We travel. We are authentic. We are quirky. We are pros. We wear t-shirts. We are strategic. We are all about user experience.
Web marketing communication is a digital derivative of all other forms of effective communication. It needs to be human, emotive and intelligent.
Beyond his passion for flying, scuba diving and raising five exuberant dogs, John has dedicated his career to improving the art and science of persuasive communication. His extensive experience in traditional marketing media has naturally evolved to a fascination of and appreciation for web marketing and the establishment of Quinlanux.
John began his tenure at Quinlan as a copywriter in 1969. He was appointed Vice President and Creative Director in 1975, promoted to Executive Vice President in 1978 and President in 1983. During his years in advertising, John has worked on virtually all the agency’s accounts, past and present. He remains responsible for the quality control of the agency’s creative product as well as account service. John has received significant recognition for both broadcast and print advertising, including national Addys and New York Film Festival awards.
Quinlan’s success, and certainly its longevity, is attributable to an approach that John continues to maintain — hire great people with great talent and keep them happy. The rest seems to take care of itself time and time and time again.
John majored in English at Indiana University.
